Completely out of the blue, my almost six year old son has started wetting himself. It's happened at least 3 times that I know of, and I think probably it has happened more.
For example, over the weekend he was laying on the couch watching Pokemon and when it was over wouldn't get up. (He gets one show a day and when it's over usually jumps up to play). He stayed on the couch until bedtime (about 1/2 an hour later) and then RAN upstairs and climbed into bed and didn't want a story. It wasn't until later that night when DH sat down in a big wet spot on the couch that we found out what happened. DH went to talk to DS and clean him up, and he just said he didn't know what happened, that it was an accident.
Tonight when I was reading him a bedtime story I kept smelling something funky and realized it was him. He was wearing fleece jammies, so I couldn't SEE that they were wet, but I could sure smell it. It took a LOT of coaxing, but he finally admitted that he had peed on the trampoline (they have a small, indoor trampoline in their playroom). He wasn't jumping at the time, just sitting there playing. Once again he said he didn't know why it happened, or why he didn't tell me.
I just can't figure it out. He has NEVER had anything like this before. He potty-learned (on him own) at age 2 1/2. One day he just decided he was done with diapers and ready for underwear full time - and no accidents from that point on.
He seems perfectly healthy and hasn't complained of any aches or pains. His attitude has been a little out of whack lately, but not in a huge way.
I just don't know what to do.
